Ronaldo To Act In Iranian Movie
Former Brazilian football forward Ronaldo is all set to feature in an Iranian movie.
The 32-year-old, who is currently playing for Brazilian club Corinthians, will appear in the film based on the true story of Alneyrab, a 13-year-old girl who dreamed of meeting Ronaldo when he visited the Middle East on a humanitarian mission in 2005. The girl was killed before her dream could come true.
Ronaldo may start shooting in September in Lebanon, according to officials at the Brazil-Iran chamber of commerce, which is helping to produce the film.
Ronaldo has been a UN goodwill ambassador since 2000, and made a trip to Israel and the West Bank in 2005 while playing for Real Madrid.
